here and high capacity magazines here? >> i think time is the enemy. lyndon johnson if you read about his efforts of mail order purchasing of guns, he moved that measure in a matter of months, and he was the master of this process. and he understood that time really was the enemy in terms of getting these measures through. to be the extent we can get a strong comprehensive package moving in the senate, get it out of the senate, and then basically surround the house with the executive branch senate action and public opinion that then i actually think this could get a life of its own and really have a strong chance. >> john: connecticut democratic congressman joe courtney, thank you for coming on the program. >> thanks, john. >> john: for more now on the president's proposals i'm happy to be joined by john rosenthal. stop handgun violence and common sense about kids an guns, and by pam simon a staffer for gabby giffords who was shot at the tucson shop shooting where the congressman was badly wounded and six others were killed. she's now a gun control advocate advocate. thank you both fo

group of protesters. and here is ron johnson questioning secretary clinton. >> we were lead that there were supposedly protests and something spraining out of that. and that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days. >> we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or because guys were out for a walk deciding to kill some americans. what difference does it make? it is our job to figure out what hand and prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> jennifer: tell them hilary. i love that kind of passion. but later this afternoon that same senator ron johnson tried to slam hillary clinton for displaying emotion saying she did it to avoidancing questions. this is what he told buzzfeed . . . right. because it's all about you, senator johnson, not the four americans who died. of course. and then it was sensor rand paul's turn. he laid into secretary clinton about her record saying if he were president that he would have fired her, and then he threw in a completely unrelated question. take a listen. >> there is a certain amount of cullablety si

reporter and i'm not going to face any consequences for it. >> he has been compared to lyndon johnson i think lyndon johnson used profanity strategically and as a bully tactic. when you're in a position of rahm emmanuel and you swear at somebody you can swear at them but they can't swear at you. just the fact that you're using profanity. one of the cases where this came up, this was in jonathan aldridge's book "the promise" take your f-ing tampons out and tell me what you have to have to say. that came up when a former senator wanted to make his temperament an issue. she said, no tampons. let's talk about tampons. this is not about tampons but how women would feel about someone who does that in the workplace. so i would say that it lowered the tone of the mayoral debates. >> after--sorry, after that the mayor grabbed me by the arm. his bodyguards came in. the question is has it been an affective management strategy in chicago? can you talk about the union strike, how did it go? how did it go when the mayor behaved this way? >> i would say no, because one of the most famous stories he

led to the challenging of lyndon johnson. so i think unfortunately history becomes political, and we pick and choose what we refer to emphasize, but dr. king was gradual. he was slow to come to an open stance. he knew what the stakes were. he wasn't unaware. he wasn't innocent. he knew he would have trouble taking that position, and he took it forthrightly, and proudly, and stayed with it. >> john: kris let me ask you the same question. do you think that another great tragedy of dr. king's loss is he's only remembered as a civil rights icon and not as a non-violent resistence icon or labor rights icon. >> he's so much bigger than the box we tend to put him in. in some of those speeches, in the antiwar speeches he was talking about moving beyond tribe, race, class and nation. that's the kind of radical internationalism that we really don't talk about. even president obama's speech today he's saying we're really loyal not to party but to nations. well, king went far beyond that and say we're not loyal to nations. we're loyal to god. we're loyal to humanity as a whole. i find listening

the day. today, the 40th anniversary of the death of president johnson lbj fought for the passage of the voting rights act in 1965. this is what he had to say the day he signed the act into law. >> today is a sound of freedom as huge as any victory that's ever been won on any battlefield. >> michael: and even as he spoke then, you know, that long ago the supreme court has agreed to hear a constitutional challenge to the act this year. president obama's inaugural address yesterday, though, he recognizes the battle for voting rights isn't over. here's the president. >> obama: our journey is not complete a citizen is not forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. >> michael: now that he has been inaugurated, do you think voters going to the ballot is at risk. >> i think it is. the republicans are a minority party. they got the minority in the presidential and senate and over all house races they're not working with the demographic roots that are growing in this country, which are largely latinos. and it will make it impossible for them to break into that voting block. the o

you and senator johnson are raising the timing of it and the like. but i also hope we're look forward because right now libya is still dangerous. it is still in a very unstable status. and whatever we can do for them, we at least ought to agree we need to do and get out there and start delivering. >> thank you, madam secretary. >> madam secretary, i want to honor our commitment to you to try to keep you within a certain timeframe knowing you have to go before the house. i also want to honor the opportunity for every member to ask a question. i appreciate your very thorough answers. >> she's prepared. >> with that, senator durbin. >> madam secretary, thank you for being here. excuse me. it was a little more than four years ago that a number of your colleagues myself included, encouraged you to take on this responsibility. believing you would have a profound impact on the world and on the diplomacy of the united states. >> hal: did we grab any of mccain's response? here's the interesting thing is she's been very thorough in her answers and mccain drug his chunk out for quite som

. >> yeah. it is a situation that has been with us for six years, and lyndon b. johnson in six years as majority leader faced one, and harry reid has faced 361 in the same six-year period. and even if you have the 60 votes to end one, they take up the power of the senate. >> stephanie: you know what is interesting. they just did this study -- this is no surprise to you, but the 112th congress was the most polarized ever. the distance between the two due to record levels between the 111th and 112th even different than the before when they used to take out pistols and shoot each over. >> yes. >> stephanie: i look at poll after poll -- i mean 90% of the american people want background checks for gun -- and you think -- and yet you hear over and over we're probably not going to be able to get any of this gun stuff done. but this is part of the reason right? >> it is part of the reason. why are we talking about reducing food stamps and hunger programs at a time when we can't even close a loophole for a oil company. well, it's a filibuster. dream act, why couldn't we do it? filibuster. and we

ride in a bulletproof car was lyndon johnson in 1965, michael shure. the first president to ride in a car at all, excuse me, david shuster, are you there? the first president to ride in a ceremony in a car was warren harding back in 1921. so shuster, can you see from where you are. you've got a unique spot looking back at the capitol. can you see any of that happening? >> yeah, we can see over to constitution avenue. can see the crowds blocked off. we can see the monitor. what i wanted to say about the motorcade is a couple of things. first of all, in order to prepare pennsylvania avenue for this path, they removed something like 25 different stoplights that were on poles and the other thing that they do as part of security is early this morning, the electric company and gas company will go manhole cover by manhole cover, prop them open, make sure nothing is underneath and put a little x of spray paint and we would it shut. they know that pennsylvania avenue has been cleared. so it is a fascinating process to get pennsylvania ready for this motorcade. the other thing i want to tell yo
